    The living expense out of campus at the University of Cali is $54,400

    That's too much for me - is everything paid off at once?

    If not, is there other ways to go around it?

    I believe you can get loans from the government, and if you're from a low income family the university often offers grants and bursaries.

    When I applied for the university of Harvard it would have cost around $52,000 but because I'm from a very low income family and I'm an overseas student, the university offered to cover everything except $3,000, which I was expected to pay myself.

    So look into it and check, as they're incredible for grants, bursaries and scholarships in the USA because so many people are in the same boat as you. Are you American? If not, be aware that you need to take American SATs; they don't accept a-levels.

    Also if you're from the UK then check out www.fulbright.org.uk, as they are an official source of information on applying to American universities if you're British, and they have a section on funds and scholarships.

    Fullbright confuses me when applying to study in US.

    Is there a way to sign for funds or scholarships separately because l'm using COMMON APP to apply for universities in America.
